NATCHEZ — Natchez High School ended a frustrating season on a high note with a 54-36 victory against Wingfield High School, and a few seniors ended their careers with standout performances.

The Bulldogs’ Earon Brown had 72 yards on seven catches and two touchdowns, and Devonte Green led on defense with eight tackles, three assists and one sack. Capre Garner tallied two tackles, two assists and one interception on defense, and he also scored on a 12-yard touchdown catch.

Juniors Anthony Robinson and Sidney Davis stood out the most, however. Robinson led NHS in rushing with 166 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries, and he was also 19 for 28 with 338 yards, five touchdowns and one interception. Davis, meanwhile, had 214 yards receiving on seven catches to go along with two touchdowns.
